    Which one do you like better? I myself like the P better, but the J may offer more tonal versatility. I dont know what "Japanese rock music" is(sorry, Im old) so I dont know what tone youre looking for.

    My suggestion? Go to your local music store and test drive every Bass in your price range and let your hands/ears decide.

    Well - do a search and you will get hundreds of opinions and replies - rather than just one short message! And why should we repeat everything, every time some new poster appears?? !! :mad:
